In a bid to encourage coffee plantations in the hills of Nagaland, the state land resource department is encouraging organic coffee cultivation in fertile areas, with targets to increase the production substantially in the future.

Nagaland agriculture production commissioner Y Kikheto Sema informed that the state presently has nearly 10,000 hectares of coffee cultivation, and it is taking steps to expand it to 50,000 hectares by 2030.

Sema also mentioned that the state has exported 27.5 metric tonnes of Nagaland coffee to the South African company, Noble Cause, which signed an agreement to buy it for 30 years.
